Compliance Dismissals

​​Compliance ​Dismissals Information​

​​Unless specifically noted, most violations are not eligible for dismissal by the court. Some violations, however, may be dismissed if specific corrective action is taken within a specified time and a required fee is paid.

Below is a list of common compliance dismissals:

  • ​Fail to Maintain Financial Responsibility (no insurance) - defendant must provide proof of valid liability insurance on the date and time of the offense, which will be verified. If found to be valid, the case will be dismissed. There is no fee for dismissal.
  • Expired Vehicle Registration less than 1 year— defendant must present a dated vehicle registration receipt showing the violation was corrected within 20 working days from the violation date and the registration late penalty fee was paid to the County Tax Assessor. There is a $20 dismissal fee.
  • ​Expired Driver’s License—defendant must present proof to the court that the driver’s license was renewed within 20 working days from the violation date. There is a $20 dismissal fee.
  • Failure to Display Driver’s License—defendant must present proof to the court of an appropriate and valid driver’s license issued in their name valid at the time of the offense. There is a $10 dismissal fee.
  • Failure to Report Address or Name Change on Driver’s License— defendant must present proof to the court that their address/name was corrected within 20 working days from the violation date. There is a $20 dismissal fee.
